Immediately greeted by the friendly staff and I think it was the manager, starting joking with us. We were seated and shown the fish menu specials and handed the menu. We order a bottle of wine valpaccseo and we recommend it. Starters: Bruschetta: lovely Calamari ... Succulent pieces coated in a light batter that melted in the mouth. Main: halibut... More

Read a lot of reviews that made this place sound authentic Italian, in reality the food was poor, the lasagna was almost inedible and even the garlic bread was burnt, the staff were courteous and friendly but would not recommend.

I was looking for a restaurant to take the family to for my husband's 70th birthday. We had never been to the Bella Napoli before, but they easily accommodated 9 of us at one large round table. Some of the party were late due to a road closure, but this did not cause a problem. The staff were very helpful,... More

We called in for dinner, sadly all 3 pizzas had to go back as they looked more like soup than pizza toppings. Not a great experience, we won't be going back.

Brighton Marina has two distinct parts – the new ‘looking over the water’ – and the 1980’s small shopping parade with empty shops and the Harvester. This place is in the less glam part. The restaurant is bright and clean and the strength is in the friendly waiting staff. The food has the feel of a 1980’s interpretation of Italian... More

We visited after 9.30 on a Saturday night and the restaurant was packed with people which is a good sign, especially as a few other establishments were sparse or not serving. Very welcoming from the outset and after choosing a £30 bottle of wine, we were recommended a bottle £8 cheaper by the waiter and this proved a great choice... More

As it was my birthday and I chose Italian for our evening meal, we chose this restaurant as it looked good and it was close to our hotel. We were shoved in the back of the restaurant on a table with red and white squares (very Italian). The starters I had were mussels and probably half of them were still... More

Good selection on the menu. Two of the meals were ok. Many of the mussels served were still closed so had obviously not been checked. Wrong dishes served and taken away, fish not good. When it became obvious that we were not happy, staff became very attentive - would not go back at all.
